Surinam Airways (PY, Paramaribo Int'l) will acquire a B767 in 2015 to compliment its only widebody aircraft, an A340-300, used to service its Paramaribo Int'l to Amsterdam Schiphol flagship route.

According to Caribbean News Now, the airline intends to use the B767 to help offset exorbitant charter and lease fees incurred every-time the A340 suffers technical problems or has to undergo maintenance.

In the same vein, a third B737-300 has been acquired to beef up the airline's regional operations.

Surinam Airways is also reportedly considering a possible Paramaribo Int'l to New York JFK via Georgetown Cheddi Jagan, Guyana route. Prospects for the route are strong given that Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) recently pulled out of Guyana while both Caribbean Airlines (BW, Port of Spain) and Fly Jamaica Airways (OJ, Kingston Norman Manley) were denied permission by the US Department of Transportation to fly non-stop between Georgetown, Guyana, and New York.
